The Foggo Wines Sparkling Old Vine
Grenache, a single vineyard wine, comes
from old contorted Grenache vines planted in
1920 which are dry grown producing small
fruit with intense flavour.
Grapes are hand picked, open barrel
fermented and lightly pressed resulting in a
fruit driven wine.
The nose exhibits lovely confectionary notes,
glazed cherries and raspberries.
The palate shows great depth and is
complemented by subtle well integrated oak,
with a long finish, nice tannin and texture,
full mousse and aged complexity.
Another outstanding wine from Foggo Wines

10:30am to 4:30pm and Saturday,
Sunday and Public Holidays from

Five things that have changed travel forever
By John Pedler,
RAA travel writer
Some time during the 90s, a work
colleague came into possession of a
new-fangled digital camera, and we
excitedly inserted a floppy disc.
It was a half a megapixel model,
and a handful of snaps later the disc
was full. When we checked out the
photos on the computer, I'm sure
we could make out something that
a goat. The quality wasn't that good,
but the age of digital photography
Today, photography is virtually free
and it has become crucial that
everything that happens is recorded.
Few of these shots ever make the
final trip to hard copy, and they're
destined to spend the rest of their
days lurking around Snapchat,
Instagram, or Pinterest.
A friend of mine once worked out
that he'd spent around $6000
on landline telephone calls to his
European girlfriend -- in one year.
As recently as the 1990s, a phone
call from Bangkok involved paying
for time at a phone shop.
Today, a world of communication sits
in your pocket. Many hotels and fast-
food chains have free Wi-Fi, and long
distance lovers can chat for hours
through the wonders of Skype.
And although global roaming is the
new price gouge, travel SIMs or local
SIMs can be bought for unlocked
phones, saving a wad of cash.
What on earth is a traveller's
cheque? Magic plastic has replaced
wallets full of cash for most of us,
but it wasn't until the 1980s that
international credit cards like Visa
and MasterCard became widely
used in Australia. Likewise, the ATM.
But there were some difficulties
using ATMs overseas, so most
people still opted for traveller's
Today, ATMs are commonplace and
take most cards.
Most financial institutions slug a
fee for each transaction incurred
when using your card in overseas
machines, so it's worth investigating
cards that don't carry these charges.
We were a middle-class family and
both of my parents worked, but air
travel was simply too expensive for
us to contemplate overseas trips.
So, like many families of our time,
we spent the holidays roaming
around a place called Australia, and
discovered the wonders of this exotic
location. There were long, sandy
beaches, lush rainforests, giant
rocks and peculiar animals.
Cheap international airfares mean
that Aussie travellers are now more
likely to know Dubai than Inverell,
and at times it can be difficult to
spot the Balinese in Bali.
Guidebooks are great, but they're at
the mercy of the medium in which
they exist -- print.
For much the same reason that the
encyclopaedia salesman stopped
dropping by, travellers now want
their information fresh, and not at
the end of a time-consuming journey
from research to bookshop, via the

their Lonely Planets and Rough
Guides, so they can make plans
on the run, but many decisions
